Gnome Wrecker descends from the intersection of meadow skipper and copperhead road. This trail is fast and will keep you on your toes. It flows well, but without the intuitive flow of Boot, Scoot and Boogie, or Sour Mash.

Unlike many of the other trails in whiskey run, this trial has a mix of traditional loam tread, mixed flowing countour and steeper grades. Berms can be tight or wide open. Lots of options for your interpretation.

Look for drops, roots, steep fade aways, and as always at whiskey, watch those shoulders

Access Info

From main parking lot, head uphill on copperhead road, then turn right at the 3-way intersection with meadow skipper, copperhead road, and gnome wrecker.
